Why is Oktoberfest celebrated in September?

Oktoberfest is celebrated every fall from approximately mid-September until early October.  The event has been celebrated in Germany, and especially in Bavaria, since 1810. That year, what started as prenuptial festivities for a royal wedding, turned out to be so popular that the local folk decided to recreate the fun the following year.

Oktoberfest in the USA roughly follows the same calendar as the one in Germany, and includes lots of beer drinking, oompah bands, and gobbling down German food like bratwurst and knockwurst.
